Sunday Jumble Solved – 01/29/23

Largest Lottery Jackpots Ever: Where Does Powerball Rank All Time? – NBC  New York

Visual Description:  Scratch-off counter.


Clue/Question:  A coin worth 100 cents and a bill worth 100 cents are the same, – – –

Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (6-letters)  (3-letters)  (6-letters)

1980 D And 2000 P Dollar Coins - Susan B Anthony + Sacagawea Dollars | eBay


(Dollars to donuts this is an urban scene, as opposed to a suburban or rural one!  It’s mainly in the cities that you get a clerk behind a piece of plexiglass.  But folks play the lottery just about everywhere, especially when the jackpots grow into these insane amounts.  Even though I don’t care for gambling, I’ll jump on board occasionally.  The odds of winning the grand prize are ridiculously long, and even winning some of the much lesser prizes are tough to come by.  I used to win $2 or $4 bucks every now and then, but the last few ones I’ve played have gotten me goose-eggs!  I think if I do play again, I’ll just play a single game.  Your odds do NOT improve when you play more games.

We have what looks like another new clue word to add to the world famous ralis95 clue word database, in SCURRY.  Now, it is possible, prior to the L.A. Times carrying the Sunday Jumble, that we have had it some time ago, in an earlier Sunday Jumble, but I cannot confirm this.  The jumble is definitely new, along with four others.  But we have surely seen “ahinel” in previous Jumbles.  The final answer layout was a fantastic fifteen letter jumble.  All the L’s and O’s and R’s and D’s made for a very quick solve though.

Great cartoon of people queuing up to pay for their lottery tickets, energy drinks and coffees and such.  I never cared much for the Susan B. Anthony dollars.  They were too easily confused for a quarter.  I much preferred the Sacagawea dollars.  The color alone made them stand out.  It’s been a while now since I’ve seen either one.  I guess neither one really caught on with the general public.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Unclarave is of late diffident regarding the actuality of new clue words in the Jumbles. In older days I used to enjoy the way you confidently presented appearences of new clue words and the classic sinking sailboat!
    I just hope Ralis95 and Jeff Knurrek have not stealthed the database from your laptop …

    I have very few pet peeves, but one of the few is when dropping in to a convenience store for a quick purchase and getting stuck behind someone purchasing lottery tickets. I’m usually in a hurry and impatient to start with, but waiting for this (barely) human being order their future winnings is beyond annoying! “Give me 24 12 17 daily double, $2 back up, 4 scratch offs, check my numbers” etc. Really? I just wanted a pack of gum! Always dressed like they just rolled out of bed, multiple front teeth missing. 🦷 Yep future millionaire! How come you never see a well dressed professional man doing this! Hmmmm. I wonder 💭

    Speaking of annoying, the scratchers over there 👉 rolled the dice 18 times, with 9 of them by their Powerball chief. 🙋🏻‍♀️ Y’day. Another day, another dollar 💵 another 50% day.

    It’s a good thing I don’t gamble because both of the 🏈 teams I wanted to win, lost yesterday. The Eagles Niners game was a real dud. Can’t come from behind when you can’t pass! And the Bengals were really punished by poor officiating. Too bad, that was a well played game. 💩

    Have a great day Unc,

    LOL, JB! You are only seeing this with the newer six letter clue words, as the creator of the database, ralis95, lives in SoCal, and subscribes to the L.A. Times. Until maybe the last two years the L.A. Times did not carry the Sunday Jumble, so ralis95 wasn’t doing them. (The Sunday Jumble uses all six-letter jumble/clue words) Even though I have been announcing the new clue words since around 2010 or 2011, ralis95 – who does follow my blog – says that he does not receive the email notifications, so he only updates his database based on HIS solving of the Jumbles. My copies of the database are read-only, so I cannot update them for new words. So, when I see a “new” six-letter clue word I can’t be certain that it did not appear in a Sunday Jumble from 2011 to 2021. These dates are just approximations, but I think you get the point.

    When someone is giving the clerk a big stack of lottery forms, or rattling off a slew of numbers for the pick 3, or pick 4, etc., etc., it CAN be very annoying, Smitty. But they’re more the exception than the rule. Most people go in with their $10 or $20 buckeroos and just ask for Quick-Pick. Maybe you just have to go to higher end locales for your gum!

    Other than the “late hit” what was the bad officiating yesterday? Personally, I don’t think a freight train going that fast, pursuing a speedy QB, can just pull up and stop, but those are the rules in today’s NFL. I also think that that run showed that Mahomes’ high ankle sprain is likely NOT as severe as has been reported, and he was playing it up at times during the game. JMHO.
